Des Walsh

Hi, I’m Des Walsh and I help business owners and entrepreneurs in small and medium business pursue their business dreams and still have their friends and family talking to them along the way – in other words, getting the balance right, not just living to work.

For the past 20 years I’ve applied my executive and CEO experience, and over 20 years in business, together with my advanced coaching skills, to help business owners and entrepreneurs move from worry and frustration to daily enjoyment of their roles and greater productivity.

It has been my pleasure to have Des as my business coach for the past 18 years. Des combines all the fundamentals of a good coach – expert knowledge; clear manner; guidance and suggestion rather than didactic instruction – with a leading edge knowledge of the way social media can improve my business. He is a trusted colleague and a key part of the continued success of my firm. Kris Gale, Chairman, Michael Johnson Associates

You Talk, I Listen

As a business coach I focus on listening attentively and supporting you. I’m the independent, professional sounding board I wish I’d had when I was a CEO.

I don’t tell you how to run your business. I’m the person you can brainstorm with, float thought bubbles with, even sound off to, without having to worry about what your team, your partners or your significant other might think or say, while you go through the process of testing your ideas.

Des Walsh is a driven and focused entrepreneur who stays in touch with the latest trends, resources, and technologies available to small business. These qualities, combined with years of experience in his field, make Des a superior coach and mentor. Marla Tabaka, Business Coach, Inc. Author, Small Business Strategist

Digitally Attuned

I’m an enthusiast for technology that helps communication and I love helping clients make business sense of the often overwhelming amount of information about the digital economy, social media, and social networking. Which is why I became an early adopter of LinkedIn (wrote the first book on it), Twitter and the rest, and got certified as a social media strategist. And why I am now studying how I and others can use Artificial Intelligence (AI) and tools such as ChatGPT to augment my own professional capabilities and help me to support clients when they are ready and willing to use these emerging technologies more effectively.
